Transformative education and sustainable development in Small States
Transformative education and sustainable development in Small States: Building resilience through skills and livelihoods
11:00 – 12:45
A key element of the Civil Society Forum declaration from the 19th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers (19CCEM) highlighted the need for a transformative shift from the historical approach to education, to ensure meaningful reforms for promoting resilience in small states.
The session can be an important vehicle in strengthening the educational processes collectively – as government and civil society – in creating a different world to the status quo that has been inherited, i.e. the potential of education in building resilience through skills and livelihoods.
Areas that will be looked at include:
- Issue of employment
- Role of Further and Higher Education
- Issues in Participation
- Adult, Youth and Community Education
- Cross-cutting climate concerns
Pulled from these and other areas, the session will aim to deliver clear messages that Ministers can translate to their respective National Education Frameworks.
